Came across the lookbook.nu page of blogger Moti Ankari today. He blogs via themetro-man.com. Very stylish looks. Definitely worth checking out if you’re a guy looking for ideas to improve your style or if you’re a girl looking for ideas to help your guy improve his style. Note to ladies: Suggesting to your guy how he should dress could come off a little on the controlling or mothering side. So only help your guy if he has asked for your help and if you have a keen enough sense of style when it comes to men’s fashion to justify your input.
This is blogger Moti Ankari wearing a navy flannel suit. He’s the inspiration for this post “How to wear a navy suit”. His outfit, which he blogs about in a post titled “Holiday Dressing” pairs a navy blue flannel suit with a burgundy v-neck sweater. The shoes are a pair of burgundy Oliver Sweeney ‘Hasketon’ Spectator Shoe brogues. The other pieces are a Stetson hat and a pair of blue socks with yellow stripes. Additional accessories: a pair of sunglasses and a watch. (See more pics featuring this look via The Metro Man blog)

You will first need to have a navy suit jacket and matching trousers. It’s not necessary for it to be our featured selection Paul Smith Navy wool mohair blend formal suit which is a bit on the pricey side and possibly a bit more formal than needed.

Classic suit trousers featuring a button and zip fly, a hook and eye fastening,a waistband with belt loops, side slit pockets, two back buttoned welt pockets, a straight leg, and a slim fit.
You will need a burgundy sweater. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a v-neck sweater although the v-neck definitely helps to give Moti’s look a laid back casual appeal.

You will need a pair of burgundy shoes. The Oliver Sweeney ‘Hasketon’ Spectator Shoe would make an excellent choice.
Avenue Sixty was created in 2012. Originally titled My Fashion Wants and located at the URL myfashionwants.com, Avenue Sixty began as a magazine style fashion blog with an ambition to become one of the top fashion blogs on the Internet. When that ambition was not realized, the founder decided to use avenuesixty as her own personal diary/journal/newsletter-magazine to live out her modeling fantasies and to keep herself actively engaged in writing–a passion since she was 11 years old.
